Steve Coogan has added an extra date to his Irish shows after his first gig at Dublin's 3Arena sold out. He will now play the venue on April 23 and 24, 2022.

Coogan is set to open his new live stage show Stratagem With Alan Partridge in Belfast's SSE Arena on April 22nd next year, followed the two Dublin dates.

Tickets from €46 including booking and facility fees are on sale now.

According to the statement from the broadcasting legend himself, "Love him or loathe him, we all love Alan Partridge.

"Over a multi-decade broadcasting career, this wonderful and surprisingly well-read man has brought delight to millions. And now, in a time of discord and disease, Alan is touring with a message of hope.

"Welcome to Stratagem With Alan Partridge, a live stage show that promises to inform, educate and entertain in approximately equal measure.

"Wearing a head-mic favoured by TED talkers, market hawkers, TV evangelists, backing singers and carnival barkers, Alan combines all these roles and more. It’s a manifesto for the way we can move forward, a roadmap to a better tomorrow, an ABC for the way to be.

"Devised, written, choreographed, performed, and funded by Alan Partridge, Stratagem sees Alan not just treading the boards but pounding them, atop stages graced by such luminaries as Michael Ball, Jack Whitehall and Welsh rockers the Stereophonics.

So, join Alan, live on stage, (though patrons are asked not to join Alan live on stage) as he brings Stratagem to a city or selected good-sized town near you."

No stranger to Ireland, Coogan has often talked about his Irish roots and last year delighted his Irish viewers when he appeared on his new BBC Show This Time with Alan Partridge as west of Ireland farmer Martin Brennan, who sang rebel songs live in the BBC studio much to Alan’s alarm.
